By  | 

WINCHESTER, Ky. (WKYT) - One of six suspects charged in the deaths of two Winchester teenagers is headed to court.

Ronnie Ellis appeared in court on Wednesday afternoon. A judge delayed Ellis's preliminary hearing until Wednesday at the request of an attorney.

Ellis turned himself in on November 8, a day after the shooting that claimed the lives of two 16-year0old girls.

The cases against the five other suspects, Mikaela Buford, Denzel Hill, Darian Skinner, Matthew Carmen, and Julia Richardson have been sent to a grand jury.

Investigators said witnesses saw Ellis, Hill, and Skinner get out of a car driven by Buford and fire shots toward an apartment on Washington Street.

Detectives testified Carmen admitted returning fire at the three men. Buford and the four men are charged with complicity to murder.

Kayla Holland and Adriana Castro ended up caught in the crossfire. They died as a result of their injuries.

After the shooting, police said Richardson helped hide some of the evidence.
